Alabama Artists Gallery Presents
a Survey of Textile Arts


 New exhibition
from Bib & Tucker Sew-Op showcases the transformative power of sewing


MONTGOMERY,
Ala.,
(November 17, 2021) — The Alabama State Council on the Arts and the Georgine
Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery is currently showcasing an exhibition of works
from Birmingham-based nonprofit Bib & Tucker Sew-Op.


The
exhibition entitled
“10 Years of Bib & Tucker Sew-Op: A Visual Survey” explores a decade of creation from
the members and students of the Sew-Op, including quilts from the March Quilts
collection, “Recycled Runway” upcycled fashion pieces, quilt blocks, and more.
It is currently on display at the Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery in
downtown Montgomery.


Bib & Tucker Sew-Op
is a nonprofit arts organization that teaches sewing skills through projects
that give back to the community and promote empowerment, education, and
economic opportunity.


Since
its founding, the Council on the Arts has continuously supported Alabama’s arts
and culture sector through grantmaking, including organizations like Bib &
Tucker Sew-Op. As arts organizations across the state continue to safely reopen
and host in-person programming, the agency aims to highlight the importance of
continued public funding for the arts.


Open House/Pop-Up Market @ Alabama Artists Gallery


Stop by the Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery on Saturday, November 20,
from 10 a.m. until noon for an open house and pop-up market featuring handmade
items, including pillowcases, market bags, face masks, stuffed toys, and
specialty applique patterns. The following forms of payment will be accepted:
Cash, check, Cash App, and Venmo.


Free Workshop/Sewing Session @ Alabama Department of
Archives & History


Following the open house, join Bib & Tucker Sew-Op, in collaboration with
the Council on the Arts, on Saturday, November 20 at 1 p.m. at the Alabama Department
of Archives and History for “Mending Our Stories: Art Expression for Veterans
and Their Families.”


During this workshop, veteran spouse and Community Arts program
manager Dr. Jacqueline Viskup will discuss different types of art projects
veterans participate in to amend misconceptions, mend their own selves, and
communicate with their communities. Sew-Op facilitators will help participants
create quilt blocks that illustrate their unique experiences with military
life. These blocks will join others made throughout 2022 and will become part
of the March Quilts collection. All are welcome to attend – however, the focus
will be on those who have a personal connection to military service, including
extended family members and arts organizations working with the military
community in and around Montgomery. To learn more and register, visit bibandtuckersewop.org/upcoming-events.html.


“10 Years of Bib & Tucker
Sew-Op”
is on display at the Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery
through January 5, 2022. Free and open to the public Monday – Friday from 8
a.m. – 5 p.m. Visit us on the first floor of the RSA Tower, located in downtown
Montgomery at 201 Monroe Street, Suite 110.


While enjoying the exhibition, we
ask that visitors wear a mask or face covering and maintain a six-foot distance
from others. For additional information on the exhibit, contact Amy Jenkins, gallery

About the
Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery

The mission of the Georgine Clarke Alabama Artists Gallery is to
promote the creative talents of Alabamians through exhibitions, publicity, and
educational programs. However, most important to the exhibition schedule is the
presentation (and celebration) of the fine work being done by Alabama’s
artists. The Alabama Artists Gallery was renamed in honor of Georgine Clarke
following her death in 2012. Georgine served as Visual Arts Program Manager at
the Council on the Arts for 17 years, and her influence on the work of the
Council is still felt.
